Arsenal hosts Roberto Martinez’s Everton in an FA Cup quarter-final tie as current holders Wigan Athletic are drawn away at Manchester City for a repeat of last season’s Wembley final.

The Gunners bounced back from last week’s 5-1 thrashing at Anfield to beat Brendan Rodgers’ men 2-1 at the Emirate Stadium as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored one and then set up another in a 2-1 win to reach the last eight.

The England winger guided in a loose ball after 16 minutes before providing the cross for Lukas Podolski to fire in from 15 yards at the start of the second half.

Steven Gerrard converted a penalty but Liverpool could not force an equaliser.

On Loan Ivorian striker Lacina traore opened his Everton account four minutes into his debut before Steven Naismith and Leighton Baines ensured a 3-1 win over Swanzea at Goodison Park earlier on Sunday. The Swans’ only goal came in the 15th minute courtesy of Jonathan de Guzzman.

The last eight will include a Sheffield derby if Wednesday beat Charlton after United saw off Nottingham Forest 3-1.

Sunderland travel to either Brighton or Hull, which could mean a south coast return for Black Cats boss Gus Poyet.

The four ties are scheduled to be played on 8-9 March.

Everton Boss, Martinez, on the quarter-finals pairing with Arsenal: “The draw you always hope for is a home tie, but it doesn’t matter – if you want to win the cup you have to be prepared to face everyone.

“We will have to be at our best but it is something to look forward to.

“If you want to find a word for our performances in the FA Cup this season it would be ‘professional’.

“Everyone in our squad is capable of coming on and making a big contribution.”
